Co-presented with Creatively Speaking and in association with the Mayor's Office of Media & Entertainment., this series is a survey of key films by African-American filmmakers produced between 1968 and 1986, when Spike Lee's She’s Gotta Have It was released theatrically—and followed by a new era of studio filmmaking by black directors. Representing highlights of New York-based independents during a time when minority film production was not supported and frequently suppressed, these are major works by some of the great filmmakers of this (or any) era in American film history.
Staring at Sound is an exploration of sound and image: what it means to watch something; the myriad ways in which performance, film, and video art intersect and enrich one another; and how sound and light interact with each other within a space.
